Summary: This is the worst video game I've ever played! The worst! I'me not sure what the right camera for a basketball game is, but this isn't it! The game play is duscusting. It has only mediocre graphics. None of your team mates can catch any passes, and you stop running when you get the ball. The commentating is horrible. In a spurs- lakergame, on one end, he'll say chris webber is getting all the rebounds. Then he'll say the lakers are dominating on the boards.
Summary: Just as the title states. A perfect NBA game needs certain things. Everything must be on a professional court, unlike NBA Street. Throw in about 7 game modes. (Try single game, season, franchise, 1-on-1, 3-point shootout, practice, and create-a-player.) If you guys ever get a chance to watch TV, turn to basketball. Watch the enemy AI. What the crowd is looking for is awesome gameplay and realistic graphics. Some people even like animations.
Summary: This game is absolute garbage. I opened the box and I could've sworn my dog went in the house. It is definitely not up to par with other NBA Live games. Graphically, it looks like they should've released it on PS1 or Sega Genesis. The players look nothing like the real thing unlike Madden for PS2. The only highlight of the game is Michael Jordan and I feel sorry that he had to be in this game. If you want an exceptional basketball game pick up NBA2k1.
Summary: man, this game was a huge disappointment. so far, NBA2k1 for dreamcast is the best basketball game. this game lags behind far, far away. i mean, as far as the north is from the south. i expected at least some fun out of this game. this actually might be the worst basketball game i have ever played, and i've played FOX sports NBA basketball 2000 for playstation. i'm not being nasty either...i'm telling the truth. actually..
Summary: One of the most anticiptated sports games for the Playstation 2 turns out to be one of the 1st bombs for the system! I've been an EA sports- NBA Live fan for over 8 years now. Playing it on all the major systems; like, Playstation, PC's, Genesis, Super NIN, etc.. So I'm a devoted NBA Live fan. This game is a complete disgrace to the series!
Summary: In my video gaming life, I played many great game that had great technology and ideas. Also, I played many horrible games that deserves to be destroyed and sent into oblivion. Well, NBA Live 2001 deserves not only to be destroyed and sent into oblivon, but this game is just...ARRGGGHHH! What happenend to everything it had? Without any Franchise Mode or 3-Point Shootouts (NBA Live 98), there is very little to do.
Summary: As a long time fan of the NBA Live series, I can honestly say that I purchased the PS2 almost only to play this game. NBA Live 2000 was so good, with the challenges and the unlocking hall of fame players, that I expected this game to blow my mind. Unfortunately, it only blew a hole in my wallet. First off, the gameplay is sluggish and staid. Player movement seems barely a step faster than slow motion video.
Summary: From the opening, cheesy intro I knew it was in trouble. I loved the last 5 ps1 titles in the nba family, and I was excited to see this one come out so soon(probably the problem). Graphics-good, Gameplay-the worst I've seen in a while. Players look choppy when they dribble down the court, horrible basket driving capabilities. Very hard to control them. The only great thing about playing this game is to have control on your inside shots like the hook shot.
Summary: As a loyal fan of EA Sports products I said I would give this game a chance even though I had read all the bad reviews it had received. I was expecting Madden 2001 game play when I bought the game, but what I got was Nintendo Double Dribble! . They (EA Sports) really jerked us with this game. First they give us Kickamus Maximus whatever... and then they deliver this.
